Basketball Play - Spurs Stagger Screen

Spurs Stagger Screen

Kevin Bruinsma 07/08/2013

The San Antonio Spurs utilized a lot of movement and spacing to create open rolling lanes for #21 Tim Duncan. Here they look for the quick hoop as the 3 man curls off a stagger screen. After screening #21 Tim Duncan pops back to get a catch. He executes a dribble handoff and dives hard to the rim. The Miami Heat had a difficult time dealing with him rolling. See More

Basketball Play - Las Vegas Aces - Pinch Post Series | Chicago

Las Vegas Aces - Pinch Post Series | Chicago

Aseem Rastogi 04/17/2019

Perhaps their most effective action, Chicago is taken straight from the Triangle offense to get a dynamic offensive player getting straight to the rim with space. In this case, that dynamic player is Kayla McBride, who is one of the premier scorers in the world. Statistically speaking, McBride ranks in the top 20 in the following categories: Points per game (8th - 18.2) Assists (17th - 3.5) FT% (91.7) 3P% (12th - 39.3%) Minutes (7th - 32.3) With a player as explosive as McBride, The Aces play at a constant advantage when she is moving downhill or coming off screens. Utilizing the Chicago action allows her to do both - come off a lateral screen from a post player and to take a handoff from another with space to her right (strong hand) to attack the rim. On occasion, McBride or Tamera Young will reject the Chicago screen, which can lead to either a double stagger for them toward the rim or the screener popping, making a one more pass to the corner player for a shot/drive decision on the closing defender. Finally, the Aces run a quick hitter to get into this same action, disguising the entry with an Iverson Cut by McBride, a pindown for Wilson, and finally the Chicago action. By running this "false" action prior to the action they actually want, they add an element of confusion for the defense, who now must contend with multiple screens prior to the scouted screens.

Basketball Play - Las Vegas Aces - Iverson Baseline Double

Las Vegas Aces - Iverson Baseline Double

Aseem Rastogi 04/16/2019

When you have a dynamic scorer like Kayla McBride, you MUST find a way to get them the ball where and when they want it. The Aces drink from this well quite often, as they try to get McBride coming off a double stagger on the baseline. She is so adept at using screens and is one of the most explosive players in the world - this quick hitter allows her to get the ball with a quick shot/drive decision and plenty of space to work with.

Basketball Play - Las Vegas Aces - Horns Flex

Las Vegas Aces - Horns Flex

Aseem Rastogi 04/16/2019

Las Vegas runs a beautiful Horns set which allows plenty of options for their dynamic scorers to get the ball where they want it the most. Early in the season, Vegas ran this and utilized the Flex action well. As teams started scouting, they went to the secondary action which is to reject the initial Flex screen from the cutting passer, and instead use the double stagger. See More

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - Elbow (Corner Offense)

Toronto Raptors - Elbow (Corner Offense)

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

With the addition of Marc Gasol's playmaking ability, Nick Nurse has reintroduced the "Elbow" series into the Toronto Raptors playbook in the 2018-19 season. Popularized by Rick Adelman as the Corner Offense, this set allows the Raptors to utilize their versatile personnel, such as Pascal Siakam and Kyle Lowry, in inteerchangeable roles as passers, cutters, and pick and roll ball handlers. Often times ran at the end of games, this set allows Nick Nurse to involve all of high star players at once. See More

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - "3" BLOB

Toronto Raptors - "3" BLOB

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

Throughout Kyle Lowry's tenure with the Toronto Raptors, this baseline out of bounds play has been used as a set-action to get him a 3-pointer in rhythm going to his preferred left. During a mid-seasoon slump in 2018-19, Nick Nurse dialled up "3" BLOB several times over the course of a few games to great success. After toggling from the inbounder and continuing into the continuous staggered screens, Lowry eventually will shoot a catch-and-shoot jumper. See More

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - Back Screen Floppy

Toronto Raptors - Back Screen Floppy

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

After this play was left dormant for several years in the Raptors playbook, Nick Nurse has brought it back this season to get Danny Green perimeter jumpers. Dwane Casey had previously run this play at least as early as the 2013-14 in Toronto for DeMar DeRozan, but had left it unused in recent seasons. In 2018-19, Nick Nurse has opened several games running this play. See More

Basketball Play - Toronto Raptors - 62 Flip

Toronto Raptors - 62 Flip

Cooper Smither 04/10/2019

Nick Nurse (and Dwane Casey before him) have used “62 Flip” – a play that disguises itself as a typical off-ball action but is really a ball-screen play. The Toronto Raptors debuted it in their playbook during the 2018 playoffs and have continued to use it during the 2018-19 season. A set that gets their players in motion to keep defenders moving, "62 Flip" is used in typical half court scenarios. See More
